Timotesubani

The village of Timotesubani is preserved a  monument of Georgian architecture – a large monastic complex (XI-XVIII cc.), themain construction of which is the Church of the Assumption (line XII-XIII cc.), built from pinkish “Georgian brick“.. The central - dome type buildings are an inscribed cross, on the east side of which there are three protruding apses. The dome neck rests on two free-standing columns and walls of the projections of the altar. The height is 28 meters (with the cross, 19 meters in width and 11 meters in length). The north windows bricked up and painted. Later, on the west side, were added brick gates, which on the south side are made of hewn stone.

 

The Church is one of the most significant monuments of Georgian culture, which because of its unique murals, was included in the Global Fund of cultural heritage rescue. The painting is made not later than the 20ies of the XIII century and refers to the great monuments of the reign of Queen Tamar. Also  is preserved the hall type church, built of hewn stone (XI century). In the houses located in the monastery courtyard lived monks. On the upper northern terrace stands a small, single-nave Basilica of St. Barbara, and on the north-eastern side of the central church a  vaulted tomb built of stone is preserved.
